Georgia has eight teams represented
12/16 - In its 14th year, the USA Swimming Club Excellence program has identified clubs that execute strong, well-rounded age group and senior swimming programs to produce elite 18-and-under athletes. Georgia Swimming had two clubs, Dynamo and SwimAtlanta, in the top 10 (it was the only LSC to do so). The top-20 clubs earn Gold level and those ranked 21-100 are designated as Silver. The next 100 clubs are recognized as Bronze. GOLDS and RAYS were named Silver Medal clubs while LINS, GA, GCAT and ASL were Bronze Medal clubs. With eight ranked teams Georgia Swimming was the 6th highest LSC in the country. The complete list can be found here.
